Sai Baba: What is Spiritual Self-Realization

Sai Baba: What is Spiritual Self-Realization


Sathya Sai Baba

The essence of Sathya Sai Baba's worldview lies in self-realization, the exploration of a person's very rich inner world. It is obvious that the deep feeling of "I" live is inherent in allThe very existence does not require proof, it is characteristic of a person of any nationality and age, gender, national culture, social status, education and religion. People can be happy or heartbroken, forget to find a definition for their mysterious “I”, experience happiness or suffering. They cannot give an explanation of who reflects, speaks, performs certain actions, or who is aware of the world around him.


Any question is preceded by the main one - who is "I". A person concentrates his attention on the goal that he wants to achieve, often forgetting to figure out who the real “I” is. Sathya Sai Baba introduced the skills of meditation, self-realization of a person in his activities by telling amazing and instructive stories that are described by the old Vedic ritual scriptures. But the main issue should remain the deep analysis of human nature, understanding the unity of his inner worldview and God, which is self-realization.

Sathya Sai Baba: personal experience


I was fortunate enough to be Sathya Sai Baba's translator for several years. I first came to Puttaparthi in 1993, from then on I came and lived in Puttaparthi there for several months every year until Sathya Sai Baba left this world in 2011.


Prema Sai Baba


Many times I have had the privilege of attending interviews with him, it is difficult to say how many, probably more than 200 times. Sathya Sai Baba spoke in English and I translated for Russian-speaking devotees. It was a unique experience, I witnessed numerous miracles as well as spiritual teachings that Sathya Sai Baba gave to his devotees and visitors.


In this article I will not write about all the amazing details of my personal experience with our beloved Sathya Sai Baba. I have published three books with my memories, which have become widely known in Russia, and they can also be bought at the bookstore in the Sathya Sai Ashram in Puttaparthi.


Thanks to these books, I even got a membership in the Union of Russian Writers, who highly appreciated the literary style of the works. The titles of the books: "Sathya Sai Baba - the embodiment of a dream", "Sathya Sai Baba - the miracle of the blessed life", "Sathya Sai Baba - the eternal God and perfect man."


In the 19th century Sai Baba incarnated as Shirdi Sai Baba. In the 20th century he incarnated as Sathya Sai Baba. In the 21st century he incarnated as Prema Sai Baba. By his incarnations, he shows the eternity of consciousness and the manifestation of His infinite love.


In this article I will tell you about my experience of communicating with a unique boy named Pritam, who is the next incarnation of Sai Baba, in the future we will call him Prema Sai Baba. In this article, I describe the period from 2015 to 2018, the period of his childhood from 3 to 6 years old. All the events and miracles described in this material are my personal experiences, I was the direct witness of all the events.

Translator of Sathya Sai Baba

Translator of Sathya Sai Baba



When a group of Indians came to Sathya Sai Baba, he spoke with them in several Indian languages, for example, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Marathi, Bengali. When a group of foreigners came to him, then the conversation took place in English. Most of the Russian-speaking people did not know English, thus during personal meetings Sathya Sai Baba spoke through translators. I was fortunate enough to translate many times at such meetings. The main advantage of the translator is to have frequent personal communication with Sathya Sai Baba.


I often recall two interesting stories that occurred in the early 90s and were very instructive for me, as a translator. In the beginning when I just started translating for Sathya Sai Baba, I worried too much, especially during the first interview, because I felt a lot of responsibility. However, soon I witnessed two interesting cases, which made me realize that there was nothing to worry about and relaxed.


SATHYA SAI BABA - "My life is my message"

All that we do and everything that happens to us are steps of the spiritual path

All that we do and everything that happens to us are steps of the spiritual path


Sathya Sai Baba is the divine incarnation of our era. He was not just a philosopher who commented on the Bhagavad Gita and the New Testament, spoke about the teachings of Krishna, Christ and Buddha. Sathya Sai Baba possessed tremendous superhuman strength.


The scale of his energy was so great that people approaching the ashram could feel his special energy over a distance of 40 kilometers. There was a feeling that something unusual was going to happen, the soul was filled with joy and peace. It was a truly unique experience that many recalled. Divine vibrations pervaded the travelers, people felt that they were entering a special sacred place, their thoughts calmed down, the whole atmosphere was filled with light.


The closer we got to the ashram, the more intense the sensations of joy and bliss became. Finally, when travelers arrived in Puttaparthi, the sensation of miracle peaked. It seemed that this place was somewhere far in heaven, it was difficult to believe that you were on earth.

Dreams come true, I went to India and met with Sathya Sai Baba

Dreams come true, I went to India and met with Sathya Sai Baba

I first learned about Sathya Sai Baba in the very beginning of the 90s. At that time, I made several friends who had already visited Sai Baba's ashram. One of them was a successful Moscow businessman who had been interested in yoga for many years, and in the very beginning of the 90s he was one of the first Russians to go Sathya Sai Baba’s Ashram in India.


In addition, I met two Indian students of a medical institute, who also told me about Sathya Sai Baba, an amazing Guru from India who preached deep philosophy and worked amazing miracles.


In the late 80s and early 90s, yoga groups and meditation centers began to be organized in Russia. At the same time, it became possible to freely travel abroad, including to India, information about various esoteric traditions openly appeared. Amid a large stream of new information, information about Sathya Sai Baba was especially attractive.


My first trip to India took place in 1993. This trip was completely spontaneous. At that time, I had been studying yoga, meditation and Vedic philosophy for more than ten years. I could not even imagine that I could easily go to India and meet Sathya Sai Baba, all this seemed unbelievable to me.


Suddenly, circumstances literally swirled around me, several of my friends unexpectedly went to India and two weeks before the departure they invited me to join them. Hence, I first came to this fabulous country for six months. At the beginning of the trip, we visited the ashram of Yogi Ramaiah, a unique Guru of Kriya Yoga, who lived in the very South of India. After staying there for a while, I moved to Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram.
